  • News - EY - Working capital key to unlocking ‘cash’ for mining companies - EY - Global
    according to a new EY report Make working capital work for you Unlocking cash in the mining sector analyzes the working capital performance of 80 of the largest mining companies globally and is a follow up to EY s report Cash in the ground working capital management in the mining sector The latest analysis shows a small improvement in the sector wide average working capital performance from 2013 to 2014 However the sector average masks significant differences between commodities and companies within commodity groupings The findings show cash to cash a measure of the cash conversion cycle in the mining sector in 2014 was 38 days down from 39 days in 2013 a reduction of just one day On a commodity basis the average cash to cash measure was lowest for iron ore companies in 2014 at 23 days and highest for platinum at 82 days Copper gold aluminum and zinc were in the middle range from 39 days to 52 days Only three out of the ten commodity groups analyzed and 46 of the companies reported a lower cash to cash position in 2014 compared to 2013 Wayne Boulton report co author and EY Oceania Mining Metals Advisory Leader says Our analysis reveals wide variations between companies within each commodity group showing that while some miners have been very successful in freeing up extra cash through working capital others haven t made anywhere near the same gains yet Mining companies who have focused on working capital have typically seen reductions of 30 or more For larger mining companies this can mean reclaiming hundreds of millions of dollars of capital back into the business While innate operational factors and differences in the complexity of processes account for some differences between commodities this shows some companies are effectively sitting on cash because of less effective working capital management Supply chain a rich vein for working capital improvement Key areas where working capital has been released include supplier payment terms reconfiguring logistics and supply chains changing maintenance strategies and reviewing customer trade terms Boulton says Processes and systems across supply chain management particularly in regard to spare parts inventories is the single biggest area for gains to be made but also the most difficult Supply chain management processes have not changed fast enough with some still seemingly working on a production at any cost basis that companies operated on during the peak of the mining boom For example we have seen remote mine sites with significant levels of inventory spares all bought in the past 12 months If production slows those spares can be stuck in remote locations hard to sell and expensive to move During the boom when scarcity and demand meant a single truck tire was worth more than a high end sports car and miners simply couldn t afford delays it made sense to have a pile of spare truck tires It doesn t make sense today Cultural change needed Boulton expects more divergence in the working capital performance

    IPO proceeds were also in this region which accounted for 50 of top 10 global deals in 2015 Chinese exchanges re opened to new listings in December with a strong pipeline of around 690 companies ready to go public Japan also saw a consistent level of deal activity across all four quarters in 2015 There were 98 IPOs the highest number since 2007 raising US 15 6b Pinelli says Activity in Asia Pacific has largely been driven by the huge and ongoing demand to access the public markets in China A range of economic headwinds including uncertainty and volatility low oil and commodity prices and exchange rate volatility ultimately failed to substantially impact the volume and value of IPOs across the region overall With the outlook improving we expect an uptick in new listings in 2016 with the pipeline already primed Solid but not a stand out year in EMEIA 2015 was a solid but not a stand out year for IPOs in EMEIA which came second in the global rankings both in terms of both IPO deal numbers and proceeds At US 67 1b capital raised was down 10 and the number of deals fell 5 to 346 IPOs The year was marked by volatility causing peaks and troughs of IPO activity culminating in a very strong last quarter which saw 69 IPOs raising a total of US 24 0b in proceeds This is 13 higher by deal volume and 389 rise by proceeds compared to 3Q15 The strong proceeds seen in 4Q15 were largely caused by an increase in deal size including six US 1b deals raising in excess of US 15 9b these deals accounted for 66 of capital raised on EMEIA exchanges in 4Q15 Four of these EMEIA IPOs were in the top 10 deals globally in 4Q15 while four listings also ranked in the top 10 global deals for the whole of 2015 These blockbuster deals fit into a longer term trend of increasing deal size on EMEIA main markets that moves counter to patterns seen elsewhere around the world Much of Europe s strength is attributable to the slow but steady economic recovery in the Eurozone Loose monetary policy and an expectation that quantitative easing from the European Central Bank will continue into March 2017 and beyond look set to maintain investor confidence The outstanding last quarter performance bodes well as we move into 2016 Pinelli says US IPOs competing against private capital 2015 has been a challenging year for US IPOs in large part due to the marked rise in the availability of private capital which has diminished the number of technology IPOs At 173 deal numbers were down 41 on 2014 with capital raised down 65 to US 33 3b placing the US third in the global rankings in terms of IPO numbers and proceeds raised However deal numbers were only 5 below the 10 year median annual IPO deal number of 183 with the decline in capital reflecting the sharp decline
